When her husband returns from war, the Marchioness of Hawkstone battles for her independence. Less than two weeks after their wedding, Gavin Colporter, Marquess of Hawkstone, left his lovely wife Mollie at home and went off to war with Lord Wellington. Four years later, Mollie has become accustomed to running the estate and doing as she pleases. It's quite a shock when Hawkstone returns and immediately begins to assume his rights and responsibilities as lord of the manor. Can she learn to submit to his authority? What will he say when he hears certain scandalous rumors about her activities in his absence? And can these two near-strangers actually learn to live together as husband and wife?

short but sweet!
This is my first book by Amanda Scott and I enjoyed myself fully. I liked the strong heroin and a strong hero who would allow her some mischief at the same time he was trying to tame her “wild” ways. LOL. Funny to think of a woman acting rebelliously simply by wearing pants or watching a boxing match. All I can say is thank goodness I was not born at that a time. Aside from the fact that my luck I would have been born and raised as an under maid, I would have been a scandalous one at that. Good book, interesting plot just not very long.
